JimboSpins's review"Can it be used with different instruments?..."

Beyerdynamic M 88 TG
The M 88 TG is a microphone that can be used for your vocals and a few different brass instruments, but I wouldn’t take it any farther than that. It has a wide frequency response that will make your vocals sound amazing. They do say that it can be used for woodwind instruments, but I didn’t like the way it sounded when I heard it with a few different woodwind instruments including the sax (alto). The M 88 TG is very thin and skinny and it comes with a carry pouch that makes it easy to take anywhere with you. It can be used for either live or recording, they both produce a good sound.


Overall, depending on which instrument you use this microphone with is what will make or break whether or not you should buy it. It does sound great with vocals though I can admit that, but if you are looking for just a vocal microphone then you wouldn’t want to go with this one because it cost over 300 dollars and that is a little too much for a home studio vocal microphone when there are other ones that cost way less and sound the same. If you are looking for a multi purpose microphone I say stick with some of the mid range Shure lines. The Beyerdynamic M 88 TG does sound great, but only with certain instruments. The microphone just was not for me so I never purchased it, but I didn’t have a chance to work with it in a studio downtown. I was not a fan of it, if you are interested in getting the M 88 TG I would say try to test it out on what you will be needing it for before you purchase it, it will save you a headache in the long run. I have used a lot of different microphones from Beyerdynamic but this one was so difficult for me to understand when it sounds so good with certain instruments and with others sounded less then ok.

Beyerdynamic M 88 TG
It is a versatile hyper-cardioid dynamic microphone.
It is effective on many sources, with a very detailed without being cold or aggressive.
I love it.


I use it occasionally for 2 years, especially for the sound - or my own group, when I do the sound of other groups.
In this context, I obviously used a lot of dynamic microphones: SM58, SM57, Beta57, AT2010, Sennheiser e935 (also beautiful microphone for voice), Sennheiser E865 ...

I used it on many sources, and each time it was perfect.
Some examples:
- On the man's voice: a feeble voice, no technique, alto range in a difficult acoustic (very reverberant, with risks larsens), it allowed me to instantly find the right settings, while I struggled for 20 minutes with an SM58. Sharper and more detailed, more output gain, less sensitive to grip. In the general mess, we heard the singer ...
- On a voice very powerful and technical women in general very acute (a lot of head voice), it worked very well, with a good accuracy without aggressiveness.
- On an atrocious concert where the singer was back in return (he had two for himself, it is a star that I will not mention the name magnanimity) in a highly reverberant room, it took I the music for a acoustic guitar. Anxiety. Condenser mics (Oktava MK012) I used were too sensitive to grip (the singer was strongest on stage and in the hall - crazy), and I had no cell. Well, the M88 has the job without (too much) problem. It was a bit limited in terms of volume, but frankly I do not believe it. Again, the guitar has found its way into the mix, both in terms of sharpness and frequency in terms of volume (which seemed at first impossible to view)
- On skyscrapers amps, a cajon, snare moult and other sources, it is frankly excellent both times.

What I like most is its versatility, output gain, accuracy, neutrality. The fact that it may interfere with hypercardioid (do not move too much), but it also helps to isolate the other instruments or ambient mess (see my experiences with him)
I find nothing to complain about. Obviously, there are more happy for a particular source or a particular aesthetic, but in terms of versatility, this is the most amazing I have ever dynamic choice.
Obviously, for less than 300 € I would do this choice. The value for money is excellent!

Beyerdynamic M 88 TG
A well-deserved reputation and extremely versatile, this is by far the best micro of my park. A great classic read on this site: "This is the one I will take to a desert island."
Excellent on brass, clarinet, guitar amp, acoustic guitar, bass drum, bass amp, with low perceived.
It does the job as a voice see a bass drum.
I probably forgot the possible uses of this mic 'but I have not been able to test all its riches.
Overall, it is recommended when seeking low.


I use since 2011.
Pros: versatility, sound quality, bass.
the -: I'll nitpick, the diameter is a little big and it forces some to return to my Shure clips.
It is about 300 € but it's worth bluntly, I put 9 because there must be better, but also versatile, look for!

Beyerdynamic M 88 TG
Very good dynamic mic I use it mainly for recording brass and I am very happy.


I use it for 2 years and I bought it last year.
A colleague lent me face and its effectiveness this micro attracted me.
For recording sound is very good, I compared the Sennheiser MD 421 for plugs and sockets trombone were very different and the most recorded songs I kept catches made with rounder M88 and warm for my taste.
I also used a lot in live if brass, percussion or snare.
I do not regret my purchase and I am very happy.
